Creagh Named For Redlands Trial

St George Illawarra Dragons captain Ben Creagh is raring to go after being named in the team for the pre-season fixture against Wynnum-Manly Seagulls at Pinklands Oval, Redlands on Saturday, February 6.

The local University of Wollongong junior is keen to test himself in the first competitive trial fixture of the pre-season and knows his teammates share a similar sentiment.

Widdop Joins Creagh As Club Captain

“I can’t wait to get out there and start playing some footy again as it’s been a long pre-season for us which started towards the end of October,” said Creagh.

“We’re all looking forward to getting back out there playing games and the game against Wynnum-Manly Seagulls organised by Redland Juniors will be for some of us the first hit-out of the year.

“It’s always great whenever we get the chance to play in Queensland as there’s Red V Members wherever we play up there.

“The Queensland Supporters’ Club is really great towards us and hopefully we get a few fans attending the trial match at Redlands.”

Tickets for the pre-season fixture, proudly organised by Redlands Juniors, are now available for purchase.

Capacity is limited so fans are encouraged to pre-purchase and get in early to avoid missing out.
